It was just announced that #TheFirstLady starring Viola Davis as Michelle Obama will premiere April 17th on Showtime.
The series serves as a reframing of American leadership, telling stories through the lens of women at the heart of the White House. In the East Wing, many of history’s most impactful and world-changing decisions have been hidden from view and made by America’s dynamic First Ladies.
The First Lady will pull back the curtain on the personal and political lives of three women and their families. Tracking their journeys to Washington, the show visits their pasts and follows them to the White House and beyond through their greatest moments.
